TEMPLES IN KAMRUP DISTRICT

The Kalika Purana says: -

Etatte kathitam punyam. manikutahvayam param

Varanasito hyadhikam siddhavidyadhara sritam

(Chapter, 78.)

The original temple of Hayagriva-Madhava was destroyed by the Kalapahar, who also destroyed the temple of Kamakhya. The present temple, according to an inscription in the temple itself, was rebuilt by King Raghudeva Narayana, son of Sukladhwaj, in Saka 1505 (1583 A.D.). When it was completed, it was consecrated by the sacrifice of numerous human victims. The king also endowed the temple with grants of land. The translation of the inscription reads: -

"There was a ruler on earth named Bisva Singh his illustrious son, the most wise king Malla Deb, was the conqueror of all enemies. In gravity and liberality and for heroism he had a great reputation, and he was purified by religious deeds. After him was born his brother Sukladhwaj, who subdued many countries.
